Tell Mommy: Do You Make or Knit Clothes For Your Children?

A friend of mine has been raving about the assortment of homemade baby hats at a tiny flower and card boutique called Willow and Bloom in Seattle, WA. I was bummed to find the selection isn't available for sale online — although you can order special one-of-a-kind gift baskets for new mommies — but, I was inspired by the designs on the company's website. One hat is shaped like a little Viking helmet and another is a simple cupcake design with hand-sewn "sprinkle" beads. Both have me wishing I knew how to handle a round knitting needle. Do you ever make or knit clothes or accessories for your children?

I make them for other people's children and probably will for my own. I love little handmade baby items.

Not clothes, but my mother and sisters crochet baby blankets for every family/close friend when they have a baby. They are super super soft and pretty and everyone gushes over them.

no, lol. after being traumatized by a mother who thought she knew how to make children's clothes; i leave that to the professionals. i have a vivid memory of being in 4th grade and wearing a stripped red/white/blue dress that was sewn in a gather around a white neck band and fell out in a HUGE tent style to just above my knees. as i walked onto the playground at lunch another girl said "look, a pregnant 4th grader" and went back to eating her lunch :faint: many other such memorable outfits.

I make them for everyone I know who has a baby! Baby things are really fun and quick to make! The cupcake hats are actually super easy. I have a pattern for a little girl's Viking hat with yellow yarn braids!
